Lilly was only 9 months old when she was found upside-down in an overturned cat carrier, her limbs bound with electrical tape. No one knew she was in the car until they heard her meowing for help.
On Saturday, a drug bust in Santa Clarita, California, discovered her in tow with a couple in possession of narcotics, ABC 11 reported.
"I mean, when I first found the cat, I was like, 'no way,' the cat was up on its side," said Adam Halloran from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department according to ABC 11. "[She] was crammed in the back. I mean, I own cats, that's not how a cat should be treated."
With her feet bound, Lilly was completely unable to move. She was "meowing loudly in discomfort" as police worked to free her from the electrical tape.
